No bogeys here– Teresa Datta, a senior at Bellaire High School, has made a hole-in-one on the ACT, achieving a perfect score of 36 on the September 2015 administration of this exam. As an avid golfer who has played at a varsity level for all four years of high school, Datta knows the importance of attaining a great score to be competitive.This score places Datta in the top 1% of test takers in the world, and she says her experience preparing for the ACT through TestMasters was invaluable.
Just as any golfer appreciates a variety of irons, Datta said she appreciated the diverse personalities of Testmasters instructors. She says “The teachers at TestMasters were great! They definitely knew what they were doing, and their personalities created an enjoyable classroom environment. TestMasters provided me with the help I needed to make me work and actually study for standardized testing.”
Prior to taking the TestMasters ACT course, Datta participated in a special TestMasters SAT & PSAT course for high achieving students whose 10th grade PSAT score indicated a possibility of that student achieving national merit as a junior. This course was available to eligible students at almost no cost to the student through TestMasters’ partnership with the Houston Independent School District.
Outside of enjoying incredible success on the SAT, PSAT, and ACT, Datta is involved in Bellaire’s Yearbook, as Editor-in-Chief; she also volunteers at the Nature Discovery Center and the Houston Food Bank. Datta also intends to pursue a very interesting professional career path. Although she has no particular college in mind, she is “currently planning to major in Chemistry and continue on to Law School in order to pursue a career where science meets society- specifically, scientific public policy or patent law.”
“Starting at a young age, I have been fascinated with the maths and sciences. On the other hand, with the growing need for federal legislature related to global warming, I also realize the importance of government and law. By combining my STEM capabilities and logical and critical-thinking skills, I hope to contribute my own change in the world.”
